    Wish the power would come back on, I need to get my moms mothers day quilt done. It could be another week. We have a friend who had 2 bdrms cut off the side of their house, been over there clearing rubble for 2 days. No one is going hungry, the churches have grills set up an feeding everyone. Can't wait for normal life to return!

    I feel for you and hope the power comes back on soon. We lost power for quite a while once due to a fire. We finally went out and bought a generator - and when we got home the power had miraculously been restored. Hopefully you will have luck like ours.

    I am so sorry for all you have lost in your area. The pictures on TV are unbelievable! Are you able to do some hand work? Maybe embroider some blocks to use in a quilt later. I always try to have a cross stitch or embroidery project going to take along or for evenings when hubby and I watch TV or a movie. I guess I can't have idle hands or am ADHD! Good luck to you and your neighbors and blessings to the churches helping you get through all this.

    So sorry you are going through this. However, I just know mom will understand and the last thing you should be worried about is finishing her quilt. She would be upset if she knew you are stressing out about that with everything else going on! I know we focus on the thing we can control at times like this but really-you have enough on your plate!

    Hey Deb! I'm in Ohatchee, Al. and I know what you mean about desperately wanting the power back on. We finally got ours back about 6 p.m. today ~ now that I can see it, I have to dump out the freezer and the refrigerator and start all over again. But thankfully, at least I have a house still standing. Hope you and yours are safe and didn't lose much. It was pretty bad around here. Now you can get that quilt done!!

    So glad to hear you are getting some normal back iin your life. Keep track of what you throw out & turn it into the insurance company too if you are turning in a claim. this is such a shame what you all are going thru. I wish I could finish the quilt for Deb & come help you all in any way I could. We saw them sand bagging while in Paducah for the quilt show & I told my DH that I'd sure like to stop & help them people. He looked at me & said "Mary Ann there's no way you could get out there & sand bag" (I'm on oxygen) & I told him there is help in other ways like cooking, running errands, just anything that would help them. i pray you all are safe now too with all you have been thru

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. It is wonderful that everyone is pitching in to help each other.

    Hope your power is back on soon. We were without power after a few hurricanes One time for 12 days. Keep the faith. This too shall pass.

    You sound so positive. I would be a basket case, and I would have to use a generator for my CPAP. Hope it is on soon...

    Prayers go up for all of you in that devastated area. Bless you for helping your friend, and for getting on with a quilt for your mom in the face of all the havoc there. I hope the power comes back on for you soon.

    Our prayers go out to all of you. Hand sewing may help get you through this time. just the act of doing something so simple helps calm the mind, at least it does for me.
